Two out of four, still pretty good.
If you’ve been missing the Comedy Fest since its departure after the 2009 edition, buckle up. MGM Grand and The Mirage are partnering up for Comedy Central Weekend Feb. 22-23.
At the Hollywood Theatre, Dave Attell and Jim Norton are offering a double dose of stories likely involving hookers, while the Terry Fator Theater will play host to Amy Schumer, Nick Swardson and Anthony Jeselnik, whose new The Jeselnik Offensive premieres on Feb. 19 on Comedy Central, and whose newest album, Caligula, just dropped. Schumer’s run at The Riviera just wrapped.
While it might not be the full-service, all-weekend comedy bonanza that TBS used to host back in the day, it’s not a bad start on getting a leg up on the festival game one more time.
